Welcome to My PurpleStride Personal Fundraising Page!

Pancreatic cancer does not stop or slow down, and neither do we!

I’m going to help make progress, with your support.

I’m participating in PanCAN’s PurpleStride, a year-round national movement that funds lifechanging programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients and their families.

I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in May of 2014. In December of 2019, doctors determined that my cancer had come back. For the past 2 years, I have been going to Mayo  every 3 months for a PET scan. I thank God that at this time my cancer is not growing or spreading. The Sioux  Falls Purplestride event has been very encouraging  for me because I have met other survivors of pancreatic cancer. This year's walk is going to be be held on Saturday, April 30, at the Mary Jo Wegner Arboretum on the east side of Sioux Falls. Registration opens at 7:30 AM. The Opening Ceremony is scheduled for 830. The 5K walk/run begins at 9:00. You are more than welcome to join us for this walk. If you feel so moved, you cacan also donate to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) by using the link below.

Every dollar you give means more patients can benefit from PanCAN’s free, one-on-one support, personalized information, service and resources that can make a real difference in their lives. 

Please make a gift of any size to get me one step closer to my fundraising goal and improving more patients’ lives. 

Patients and families need us now more than ever.

Thank you for your support.
